Chilled: Antarctic life, inside and out

Antarctica, it’s no place for a flat tyre, and the grocery run is a nightmare! Yet companionship, games, festivities, recipes and homebrew find their way there.
Chilled: Antarctic life, inside and out, a National Archives of Australia exhibition showing at Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts in Hobart, invites you into the daily lives of the extraordinary people stationed at one of the most remote places on earth.
Australia has a long association with Antarctica, dating back to when Douglas Mawson led the first Australasian Antarctic Expedition in 1911. The Australian Antarctic Territory came into effect in 1936, and the first Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE) mission in 1947 established permanent Australian stations to support scientific and exploratory work.
Discover the incredible resilience of the people chosen to be expeditioners and the many creative ways in which they tackle the dangers, isolation and responsibilities of living on the world’s iciest continent.
This is a free exhibition held at Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts | 91 Murray Street, Hobart
Open Monday to Friday 9:30 am to 5.00 pm, Saturday 9:30 am to 2.00 pm, closed Sunday and public holidays
